    Description

    Allegheny hardwood stands typically develop vertical canopy layers, or strata, due to differential species-specific growth rates and tolerance to shade. Across the Allegheny Plateau, black cherry dominates the main canopy, while sugar maple, American beech, and red maple are relegated to subcanopy strata.
